Boston U outlasts Vermont
BURLINGTON (AP) -- John Papale scored a career-high 19 points to help Boston University complete the season sweep of Vermont, 64-59, Tuesday night.
Dom Morris posted 12 points and 10 rebounds while D.J. Irving, the Terriers’ leading scorer, balanced a rough shooting night -- the guard made 2 of 11 shots -- with six assists.
